How to schedule an email Enterprise Report
- In the work area to the right, right-click the name of the report you want to schedule and choose Schedule Report, or left-click the report name and click the Schedule report button on the toolbar.
- If you did not select a specific report in the previous step, you will now be prompted to do so.
- Provide a name and description for this report, then click Next.
- Specify the delivery schedule. Note that the time must be specified in Universal Coordinated Time (24-hour time).
- Specify the delivery options. Use the Add button to specify the addresses where the report should be emailed. Multiple email addresses should be separated with semicolons.
- All scheduled reports are displayed in the Scheduled Reports tab in the work area. This screen can be presented for auditing purposes.
- To modify or delete an existing scheduled report, right-click the report and choose Configure or Delete. There are also buttons for these actions on the main toolbar at the top.
- If you are prompted to specify a group as part of scheduling a report, enter the complete group path (e.g. Staff\All\Backups), otherwise the report will not work.
How to manually generate an Enterprise Report
Aside from scheduling reports, you can also manually run a report at any time. To run a report manually:
- In the Reports tree on the left, click on a report category.
- In the work area to the right, double-click the name of the report you want to view. You can also right-click and choose Show report.
Note: If you are prompted to specify a group for the report, enter the complete group path (e.g. Staff\All\Backups), otherwise the report will not work.
